If you’ve been cast away at sea for the past year, Spaceteam should be one of the first games you try out once you find you way back to dry land. In Spaceteam, you and your friends are the crew of an ill-fated spaceship. Whenever something breaks--and it will--the app instructs the crew to fix it by toggling switches, turning dials, and pressing all manner of big red buttons. The catch? The instructions you see might involve the switches on somebody else’s screen! Within moments of launching it, Spaceteam has you shouting at your friends to “dampen the X-ray oscillator,” or “Set the Brownian flow to 6!” It’s an experience like no other--the only shame is you can’t play it over the web.
Spaceteam would make for an incredible PC or console game, if only for online play. Developer Spacebeast would have to swap the existing touch controls for mouse/keyboard or controller support, but the work would be worth it. Imagine being able to log in to a game of Spaceteam any time you were bored at home! The best part? Spaceteam is so fast-paced that other players won’t have time for griefing!
